    Sounds like we are all experiencing the same issue. I have a LG 42LB1DRA and it powers on but the screen stays black (with the backlight on). This TV is only about 2 years old. I hope LG takes note and fixes this quick!

    Same problem . . . last night the tv picture went black and no sound. Lights still work. Unplugged entire day while at work, came home replugged everything and still same problem. Brought another tv out to hook up to cable and it works fine. I am calling c/s now and then I have a warranty that I purchased when I got it at Best Buy. If c/s can't help then that's my next bet. It seems that they are all timed to do the same thing since we are all around the same day range. I purchased mine 2/17/07.

    WTF.... My company bought ten

    LG 42LB1DRA 42 in. LCD Televisions
    7 out of the ten had the same problem and had to be repaired 4 of them had to be repaired twice. its nice to know that LG has yet another Quality (B.S.) product on the market. Maybe i should change the lg name on the front

    to B.S. and re-sell them and see how i do selling my garbage.

    Just happened to me today.  Bought the T.V. 11/2006.  Today the picture just went black (and no sound).  Turned it off, unplugged and let it sit for a while.  Plugged it back in and nothing works (not even the "menu" button).  It does light up (power on icon) and I can hear what I think is the Hard Drive spinning up, but no sound or picture.


    I have an extended warranty, but the service center is closed today.  Hopefully this can get fixed quickly.  Totally bummed :-(

Same problem, power cuts out after 5 mins. Called LG they told me to reset the unit. It didn't work. I hung up and called back. Different tech, same result with a little more help. Bottom line I was told to contact the local service center. Which is a whole different story. Bottom line, two weeks and 2 visits and no results. So I called LG back. Went up the ladder in their customer service with nothing. They won't take ownership because I don't have a receipt with the actual dates so they can "research" the problem.
I asked about parts and they won't sell them to me directly. They gave me the name and number for a distributor who can quote me but not sell me the parts. I couldn't be more discouraged with LG. It's supposed to mean Life's Good, but it really means Life's Gouging my wallet ! I was going to buy a new flat panle for my newly renovated basement. I'm now buying two because the service company wants $550.00 for parts and labor,
Look out Sony, here I come !!!

My Solution,....Don't buy LG !

I had the same problem. The TV would come on for a few mins then go blank and no sound. Then the TV would lock up. I tried to do the "hard reset" but still had the same problem. I called LG and told them the problem and they 1st said there is nothing they could do but refer me to a repair co. (at my cost) since the TV was out of warrenty. I explained to them that more than one of us had this problem and that it is a MFG problem and they should pay for it. They agreed to pay for the parts now and said that is all they can do since I did not have a warranty. I told them I was not happy with that and that when I pay $1,500 for a TV I expect it to last more than 2yrs. I also told them I would do whatever I could to prevent people from buying anything made by LG and that I would report them to the Better Business Bureau. Finally after several mins of b*tching at them they agreed to pay for parts and labor but only if I could provide a proof of purchase. (they would only accept the sales reciept from 2 yrs ago). I guess they agreed to this thinking I would not be able to provide the reciept. Lucky for me I happened to have kept the reciept. I faxed it to them and now I am paying nothing to have it fixed. (even without a warranty) The repair man is coming in a few days to fix it. I will report back to tell you what the problem was. I would recommend that #1 you save all reciepts of major electronics and appliances, and #2 don't take LG's BS or anyone else's for that matter. Be persistant! Hope everyone else has the same luck I did.

I had an extended warranty with the place I purchased it. They just came to take a look and they have to replace the Analog Board. They called LG directly and told them what the problems were and that's what they told them they have to do.

I just got of the phone with a manager at LG and they want to send out a technician to figure out the problem. I made it more than clear that their are more than just a handful of us experiencing this problem, and they are "looking into it".

I think we all need to call in and complain, and drive the fact home that this is not a single incident, but that there are many of us having this problem. Point them to this forum, and tell them your faith in LG is waning. A threat of informing the Better Business Bureau never hurt either. That's what I did, and now they are looking into it more, and are going to cover the parts on the service call, so that my expense for their problem is covered, even though my warranty is expired.

If we want this fixed, and prevented in the future, we have to call and *****, that is the bottom line. It is unfortunate, but that is how it has to work sometimes.

Here is the number for their customer service: 800-243-0000

If you hear anything new, let us know!

Lg plasma tv 42PA4500 no picture


1) Make sure it is plugged in
2) check the power cord to make sure it is tight on both ends
3) plug something else into the wall outlet to make sure that it is working properly
3) If the power light comes on than it is not a power problem, check the cords to the cable TV or to the DVD player, or whatever it is you are trying to watch
4) If the power light comes on but the screen is black, use your remote to make sure you are on the correct input channel to watch whatever you have hooked up to the TV. For instance, if you are watching cable, and it is plugged into input 4, you need to make sure that you have input 4 selected or else you will get a black screen.

It will not turn on..not even on stand by mode


First, check that there is power to the socket you have plugged it into. (Try any other electrical device like a PC. laptop, lamp, etc. in the same power socket).
Once you are sure that there is power from that socket, check the fuse in the TV plug top.
It could simply be the fuse has blown!
